Unable to remove drive from storage pool RRS feed

  • Question

  • Situation:

    Built the server with a 300GB SATA HD. Immediately after getting WHS running, I added another 300GB hard drive and then an 80GB USB drive. Since then I've added files to the server, but there is still over 400GB of free space. Now I'm trying to remove the 80GB drive. It says that there is enough space, but part way through moving files, I get a box that says that the Backup Service needs to be running and then I lose the connection to the Console. So I log back in again and see that the status for all of the systems for backup is Unknown. After I reboot, it goes back to normal, but the 80GB drive is still in the pool.

    Is this something I should file a bug on? Has anyone else had this problem?

  • You should check on Connect to see if anyone else has reported this, then if not report it as a bug. I suspect you'll find one or more bug reports, as I've seen mention elsewhere in the forums of problems removing a drive.
